One of the many small churches in the Marais du Cotentin that I had the fortune to explore during the Clochers en Fête last June was the eglise Notre-Dame de Cretteville. The church dates from the 13th to 15th centuries. A woman's head adorns the top of the southern portal. Inside, there is no transept and the nave is divided from the choir by a large stone archway. Above the choir is a large polychrome rood beam. The lower portions of the arches within the two side chapels are decorated with human and animal figures. The chapel to Our Lady dates from the 15th century. The church has several stained glass windows including this memorial window created by the Ateliers Lorin founded in 1863 by Nicolas Lorin, master glass maker in Chartres.
